It'll only be, what, 3 years till the next peak?

We can wait for dx that long.

I kinda wish they'd made separate qrp rigs for hf and v/uhf like the 7300 and 9700. Make the hf with an internal tuner, the v/uhf version without a tuner.

Ah yes, the wundtians vs the free willers. I side with free will.

Ok now I can justify it when it can do 4 channels at a time compared to the 9000XLT sitting here.

The vna I linked to appears to be in an enclosure as far as images go, what vna did you order?

As they say around Quebec, tres bien!

Some of the Chinese scopes can be privateered into a higher model class.

Does this perhaps open up opportunities for dx reception?

Amateur Radio / Re: QRP

On the single or dual band hf rigs, the past has shown that today's HAMs don't want to pay that much for a limited rig.
Ten Tec tried it with a small mobile hf rig that used band modules, they sold a few but not near as many as Icom sold the 706 series.

And I suspected Icom would go for around $700 or more on the 705, wich is why the Chinese qrp rigs are going to mop the floor with them. Then again, China doesn't yet have something that does what the 705 does. Who knows what the future will bring!

Also, Belize is a decent run on 5w, but cw does seem to get out when not much else will.

Also, as many HAMs have at least some kind of solar, many pv voltage controllers are huge rf noise sources.

I think these do hf fax too.

You could justify it as scientific in the sense you're studying the propagation of ism signals.
